Any real estate transaction that involves the transfer of ownership in a property is considered a purchase.

This can include some construction loans where the borrower is buying the land at the same time that he is constructing the building on the property. The key underwriting factors in purchase deals include: the property information, the credit of the borrower, the down payment as a percentage of the purchase price, and the ability to repay the debt.

With Purchase Loans, the borrower should have at least a 10% down payment BUT THE SELLER MUST BE WILLING TO HOLD BACK A SECOND MORTGAGE for between 10% and 40% of the sale price. The ideal would be for the borrower to have the standard 20%-50% down payment eliminating any need for a seller held second mortgage. Fortunately, the flexibility of our program allowing the seller to hold a second mortgage has saved many loans when the borrower only had the minimum 10% down payment. Additionally, the debt service coverage ratio should be in the 1.00-1.25 range. The terms on purchases and refinances are typically: LTV 50-80%, interest rates that are higher than Grade "A" rates, 15-30 yr amortizations, a possible prepayment penalty, and a possible balloon.

Any real estate transaction that involves paying off existing debt, taking cash out of a property and paying for improvements or rehabilitation is considered a refinance.

This can include some types of construction loans where the borrower already owns the land and is now trying to construct a building on the land. The key underwriting factors in refinance deals include: the property information, the credit of the borrower, Loan-to-Value (LTV), and the borrower's ability to repay the debt. Some refinances are just "Rate and Term" refinances, meaning that we are only paying off the existing debt on the real estate and the closing costs. The result of which is typically a lower monthly payment for the borrower. This would be in contrast to a "Cash Out" Refinance where the borrower is taking some cash out of the property for one reason or another.
